Old Blog

David Allen is a mathematician, graphic artist, writer, personal trainer, and video producer for-hire.  But, honestly, you'll be lucky if he blogs on any of these things.  He'll probably just tell you how his day is going (or how yours should be).

Pretty Hot and Tempting, and Over Pasta.

The fact is they lied to you. They told you, “Don’t cook with saturated fat, try browning your lean, tasteless meat in this Lipitor instead.” Well I will have you know that saturated fat is more stable and therefore is less likely to oxidize, become plaque, and clog your [almost useless anyway, since you never get outside anymore] arteries. You find me one doctor who can actually explain how the opposite is true and I will find you someone with a measurable IQ who thinks the Twilight series is of any value to anybody. The truth is you cannot and I cannot. We both cannot.

I made ground meat and noodles with ground buffalo. The problem is, buffalo is too lean. You actually need fat to process protein. So, I made it healthy by browning the meat in a ton of butter, adding a healthy portion of olive oil to the sauce, and adding one (or maybe two) fat filled avocados to the mix. I find it better to not actually count avocados, as counting only inhibits you eating more of them.

Isn’t heath food such a drag? The fact that I must suffer such a tasteful dish in the name of my body – it just doesn’t seem right.

Now I must finish drinking my wine from a rocks glass; but, before I go, I will leave you with some of Lipitor’s awesome benefits (according to Lipitor’s own web site), in case you are considering enjoying some over-cooked white meat with a side of atorvastatin:

These serious side effects include:

  • Muscle problems. LIPITOR can cause serious muscle problems that can lead to kidney problems, including kidney failure. You have a higher chance for muscle problems if you are taking certain other medicines with LIPITOR

Call your doctor right away if:

  • You experience nausea and vomiting
  • You pass brown or dark-colored urine

Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have side effects that bother you or that will not go away. These are not all the side effects of LIPITOR. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for a complete list.

P.S. An official study by a man with a clipboard, in a long white coat, with a name tag showed that people who thought Twilight was a legitimate novel had, on average, IQ's whose squares were smaller than the IQ itself. Hmm.
